Am I so like Israel?

Impatiently reaching for fulfillment

Thirsting but never satisfied

Yet in my own strength

On my own terms

I am like Saul presenting sacrifices for approval

This while harboring disobedience and distrust

You allow the system of the world to press me

The Spirit of Joy seems limp within me

I am broken

No longer can I hold onto to this dream or that desire

All I can want is your rescue

Be the grace you display to your faithful

Allow my voicing prayer be whispered in the halls of your council

Is there an ear listening?

May my heart be still to wait, I am broken
